Good mexican food

Restaurant is quite loud because is always full at rush hour and tables are very close each other, but food is very good. I had a burrito tarasco,very delicious. Service is fast. If the restaurant is full of people it must be a good reason, don't you agree? I had to wait for 10 minutes for a table... read more

Gave this restaurant three visits. All visits were average at best. The restaurant is clean, but the tables are too close together. Not much walking room. Two of the visits were on a Sunday afternoon. We got the same waitress on both Sundays. She was moody and unpleasant. On both Sundays there were only 2 other tables occupied, so it... More

The best thing about this place is the food. Although it is overpriced for quantity and quality. The tables are small and very close together. The service is fair.

We had an early dinner, about 6:00, and this place was SO loud that we couldn't hear each other across the table. Having the Cooking Channel blaring on the TVs was a huge distraction and did not add to the ambiance. The food was good, but a little expensive for what we got.

Going to Chicago for our first time and not knowing what places are good and which ones are not, we decided to drop in here because we saw some people eating lunch on outdoors here the day before. Both of us had the enchiladas but tried different sauces on top. I cannot remember what my husband had because mine was... More

This is a great place for ordinary Mexican food or more eclectic Latin cuisine. All of the dishes come full and taste wonderful. The margaritas are made stiff and they have all different sizes. Although the service has lacked at times, the food is quick and the atmosphere is fun and lively.
